In the dark after lightning hits substation

Hartbeespoort and surroundings, as far as De Wildt, were left in the dark on Saturday, amidst load shedding schedules, after an Eskom transformer at the Hartebeespoort Substation caught fire on Friday.

The substation supplies power to Hartbeespoort and surrounds.
The substation was switched off for repairs and electricity supply was only restored late Saturday night.
